2016: The Centennial Year: "Come and Celebrate Yawgoog"
Join us as we celebrate this outstanding milestone, the 100th Anniversary of Camp Yawgoog. From the first 250 Scouts who camped at the old Palmer homestead in 1916, to the thousands of Scouts who travel from across the country each year, Yawgoog has inspired hundreds of thousands of young men in it's 100 years. Yawgoog truly is A Scout Adventureland, Forever. Over the next two years we call on all of our former, current and future campers, staff, alumni and friends to come back to Yawgoog. Our theme for the first year of celebration is "Come and Experience Yawgoog". You can camp with your family, hike, swim and relive and remember what made your time at Yawgoog so special. In the second year our theme is "Come and Celebrate Yawgoog" and the culmination of our celebrations will be the homecoming weekend July 29-31, 2016 which you wont want to miss. Check back at this space often to see all of the events and memorabilia we will have available.

Help Secure the Future of Yawgoog The foresight and generosity of many people has helped Yawgoog to grow and thrive for the past 100 years. To continue that sprit the Rhode Island Boy Scouts have created a special “Yawgoog 100” Endowment Fund. The gifts to the Yawgoog 100 Fund will be permanently restricted, that is, they can never be spent. Only the interest and proceeds will be spent to support Camp Yawgoog. The initial goal for this fund is $1 Million. We need your help in reaching this goal to help secure the future of Yawgoog. Memorial Donors to the Yawgoog 100 Fund will be recognized with an engraved brick in a new walkway and flagpole area in the Donald North Court, next to the Bucklin Memorial Lodge. Gifts in the amount of $1,000 or greater may be pledged over a period of 5 years. You may also donate stocks and securities or make an irrevocable estate planning gift. Like so many before us, now is the time to make your gift to ensure that Yawgoog is available for the next 100 years to those that follow on the Scouting Trail.
